Infosys campus to supply electricity from on-site renewables

An on-site solar power project has been commissioned at the Infosys campus Pocharam (pictured) in the state of Telangana, near Bangalore, India.

Consulting, technology and outsourcing services company Infosys said that the 6.6 MW of new solar capacity, combined with an existing 0.6 MW rooftop solar plant, will make the Pocharam site one of the first corporate campuses in India to run completely on renewable energy.

The plant, with a total capacity of 7.2 MW, has been synchronised with the grid and is expected to generate 12 GWh per year.

Currently, the company has installed 12 MW in on-site solar power plants across its campuses and another 3 MW is expected to be completed within the next two months.

Commenting, Dr. Vishal Sikka, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Infosys, said: ‘Our team ... continues to set new standards in our commitments to reduce electricity consumption.’

By the end of fiscal 2015, the company reduced its per capita consumption of electricity by 46%, with about 30% of its energy requirements now being met through renewable sources.
